    • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (3/18/2010 11:20:00 PM)

      Pride has many faces from noble, as Mandela, to obscene, or to the ridiculous. This poem evokes the perfect contrasts between 'responding' and 'reacting' to the people or circumstances which surrounds or surprises each of us daily or within a lifetime. To respond is always to move forward, upward to a higher plain. To react is to stay the same or lose ground. Mandela rose above his circumstances, not only from his prison cell but especially in the upward struggle to unite his country-even in the face of alienating his own family.

      Free will is God-given-not granted by a religion, a political party, force, rebellion, or popular opinion. Only those who truly know The Creator God would know He has made it possible for mankind to 'master' their fate, and 'captain' their soul. His sacrifice on the cross made that possible. Possible to reject or to accept that gift. He says in His word in Deuteronomy 30 that He sets before man life and death. He desires us to choose life and says so, but nonetheless, the choice is entirely ours. He is the God that may be thanked for our 'unconquerable soul'.

      I wish to apologize for the religious man who, through two thousand millennia, has misrepresented this God to make one think the 'gate' or the 'scroll' matters not. It mattered so much that He gave His life that we may steer our ship called life to an eternity of dark or light. Psalm 34.
